I don't have any problems with my Dell laptop. Dell computers have always worked great for me despite all the bad rumor.

You might try eBay or building your own computer, which is always better then buying one pre built.

Wait are you buying a Laptop or do you want a Desktop to build?

Dell laptops are actually good because they don't make them (another OEM does) another good one is a HP
